Visit Our Seven Hot Springs

It has been said that Ogoto Hot Springs were opened about 1,200 years ago by Saicho, however there is another story…

Once upon a time, there lived a snake that had 8 heads in a valley named “Hebigatani” and the valley that the snake lived had a pond called “Nenbutsuike”. When a villager said a prayer and threw in a coin, the groundwater bubbled and the villager got his wish. It is said the pond turned into Ogoto Hot Springs.

The first choice out of seven hot spring baths will be "Indoor Bath with Lake View: Kobo-no-Yu". True to its name, soaking in the hot spring bath while savoring the lake view will heal the heart and body. As the bath is lit up at night, it totally enhances the view of Lake Biwa.
